The second day of the workshop was focused on drafting the business ideas of the participants into a real venture and Live case studies of an early stage, growth stage, established stage and failed startups were discussed.
“My objective and Lemon’s mission is to promote and encourage entrepreneurship and innovation through such workshops. Everyone has an idea. Ideas are just intangible thoughts which are easily available and anybody can think of them but how to execute an idea and develop it into a product or a service to make an impact in the society or solve the problems of the masses is what needs to be learned and lacks in the world. In short, it is the entrepreneurship acumen and mindset which needs to be developed in the society and that’s my mission. I would say I am successful if my students are creating jobs and making an impact in the society and economy of our nation.” Said Mr. Deepak Menaria.
Saniya Rao, Fashion Designer– “I had no idea so much thought goes behind creating and validating a business idea. I regret not joining before as all my venture related thoughts now need a fresh start. But I am positive that with the proper execution steps that I have learned, I will now be able to do much better.”
Dr. Neena Virani, Dentist– “Empathising with the audience is a must. unless your idea is solving a problem, what are you even doing?”
Kshitij Shirkedkar, Architect– “There are so many ideas and so less execution. people are impulsive with their ideas, we start executing them the moment they come to our mind. we start thinking of operations and how we will market the product or service. how will the ad look and many more dreams. what I learned is there needs to be a proper action plan in validating the idea and all the answers will be there right in front of you.”
Our Next workshop is coming this weekend on saturday, 4th of November. Cheggit!
